Question about Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a brand new dishwasher, Frigidaire, and it is not draining completely.
But, I had the same problem with my Sears Kenmore which the Frigidaire
I was having the same problem with water sitting at the bottom of my dish washer. I had recently installed a new garbage disposal when the problem started. You need to make sure that you knock out the inlet valve where the disposal drain line hooks up. If you have never hooked up a washer to your disposal, this piece will be in place. Stick a flat head screwdriver in where the drain hooks up and hit it with a hammer and the small plastic circle will pop out. The washer does not use any water when that is blocked and therefore will leave the old water to turn rancid...I hope this helps!

I tried all the other stuff then took the hose off of the pump there was a piece of plastic from a wheel that had broken over a year before jamming the pump it was not that hard to do

Had a similar problem, my solution was as simple as a kinked drain hose when we installed the dishwasher into our new house. Good luck.

Our Frigidaire has not been draining completely. After I fussed around looking for answers, my wife read the manual and fixed it. She completely cleaned the inside out and the vent on the sink was really dirty and plugged. Now it works fine.

If you take the toe panels off and look at the motor you will see the discharge anti-siphon tube there with the drain hose attached. That tube is the discharge major restriction point. Be careful not to destroy the anti-siphon valve, by pulling the bale, remove it, a flapper valve. If you can't see through the tube you have found the problem. Punch a screwdriver into it to dislodge the crap and clean it up. Put the anti-siphon valve back in as found and check it out. Be careful, when you remove the tube , water will come out of the pump assembly. If you remove the hose be sure to watch for water there also.

Drain line/air gap
A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Tips for a great answer:
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
